2018 Local Plan Consultation

A new Local Plan 2018 is being prepared. The Local Plan is required to set out how development and growth requirements in the administrative area covered by Castle Point Borough Council will be met over the next 15 years. The draft Local Plan is being prepared drawing upon responses received in relation to the 2014, 2016 and 2018 public consultations together with new technical evidence commissioned as necessary.

The Council invited comments on the contents of a new Local Plan between 4 July and 15 August 2018; more than 1100 comments were received from over 630 individuals and organisations.

A Sustainability Appraisal (SA) Scoping Report, used to inform the assessment framework used by the SA/SEA, was subject to a consultation with Statutory Bodies including Natural England, the Environment Agency and Historic England which closed on Thursday 27 September 2018.
